  1. Hey Frank , I think the number and letter are fine and original to the cap. If someone we’re trying to enhance the value a Corps badge would be more appropriate. I simply meant by my comment that I know more about Corps badges and ID devices than I do about Forage Caps. Also it looks like the cap has a ghost impression of a 3rd corps diamond. The number and letter may have ghost impressions under them. Again a nice cap I would be proud to own. Mike
  2. Looks like a. broach for a veterans reunion ribbon , common on civil war veterans thru WW1 veterans organizations. Mike
  3. Hey Frank , The cap looks fine to me , I really like it. I could give you a more informed opinion about the little badges the soldiers put on them . Have a good day. Mike
  4. Thanks Mike , it’s a handsome badge with that classic calligraphy style lettering.His name is on the back of the broach. John Q Adams , middle name Quincy. I never checked the family tree to see if he was related to the president , after the war he ended up in Missouri, which is where this badge surfaced .
  5. Hi Andrew , Beautiful Flag , New York has a very large collection of flags at their Military Museum in Saratoga Springs. About 20 years ago they consolidated all the collections from the National Guard Armory’s around the state . They also began a large conservation effort to preserve their flags. The effort was very timely as a lot of the civil war flags , in their words , “ have the consistency of a potato chip “. My guess is this flag was one that was saved. As usual I’am getting a little long winded. Thanks for posting it , l copied it for the file on Morris. Mike
  6. Hey Paul , Your eyes are fine . The articles didn’t copy well. I no longer have email so I tried to pm them to you.Let me know if that worked , if not here’s a link to the museum page with the articles https://dmna.ny.gov/historic/reghist/civil/infantry/122ndInf/122ndInfMain.htm Hope this works. Have a great Sunday also. Thanks for commenting I appreciate it. Mike
  7. Hi Kyle I don’t own one but I believe this book has an alphabetical listing of members with their corresponding numbers. Mike
  8. Articles from Syracuse Journal about “ The Battle of Third Winchester “ it list Morris Harrington Co. H killed in action. Copied from N.Y. State Military Museum .
  9. This 12th Corps soldier was in the adjoining breastworks with Morris’ Brigade on Culps Hill. It’s engraved with 17 battle honors and dates including Gettysburg. It lacks Aversboro and Bentonville.
  10. Hey Paul, I’ll let you know if I sell it and you’ll get first shot . I’am looking forward to doing some shows in 2021 will keep you advised. The 102nd New York Badge that I have that soldiers unit went in with this regiment at Culps Hill. A lot of head wounds because they were behind breastworks and a stone wall. Got a period newspaper article on 3rd Winchester that list Morris as K.I.A. I’ll post it as it’s interesting reading . I appreciate your comments. Thanks again , Mike
  11. manayunkman and Mike thanks for commenting. It’s a nice badge , a little dinged up , but hey it’s a hundred and fifty plus years old. Thanks again. Mike
  12. Thanks Frank. It’s nice to get another Gettysburg piece. I appreciate your comment. Mike
  13. Hi Andrew , I appreciate your comment. I think the connection on who made the badges was probably one of the weekly papers such as “Harpers Weekly “ or “ Leslies “ . I’ve tried to match a common location and have not been successful. Thanks again. Mike
  14. On August 11 , 1862 , 23 year old Morris Harrington from Geddes New York , enlisted in Co.H 122nd New York Volunteer Infantry . The regiment left Onondaga County for Washington 3 days later . On arrival it was assigned to the 6th Corps Army of the Potomac. Morris took well to soldiering and by Feb. 1st was promoted to corporal. The first battle he was engaged in was Antietam. On the second day ,the 122nd deployed as skirmishers to the right of “Millers Cornfield “(ever after known simply as “ The Cornfield “ ) and immediately in front of the “Dunker Church”.
